Since they were in middle school, Paris Carter and Chester Frazier talked about playing high school basketball together. The opportunity has finally arrived, and they want to make the most of it. The Lake Clifton teammates were among four double-digit scorers yesterday, and the No. 3 Lakers blew past Woodbridge, 72-48, at the Function in the Junction Mixer at Walbrook. "When we first came out of middle school, we had to go our separate ways at first," said Carter, a 6-foot-4 guard/forward and All-Metro selection.

Isn't it wonderful that a Catonsville school, located north of Route 40 (an area considered by many south of Route 40 residents to not be part of Catonsville) to collaboratively share its resources with a school south of Route 40?!  As an 18 year resident of Woodbridge Valley, with two children who attended Woodbridge Elementary School, I have long known Woodbridge Elementary to be a place of excellence. Someone once referred to the Woodbridge area as "a diamond in the rough," a hidden place of local residential beauty.

Holli Rathman was in her element strolling through Ikea's gigantic new store in College Park, browsing dozens of living rooms, kitchens, bedrooms - even partial model homes. In a store bigger than three Wal-Marts combined, the 30-year-old graphic designer and mother of two had at her fingertips all of the 80,000 items the Swedish home furnishings retailer makes. She had already bought the Allerum sofa bed. "This is awesome; there's lots of selection," said Rathman, a New Market resident who has furnished her entire house from Ikea because of "the design of the furniture, the contemporary looks and colors, and the price range."

EARLIER THIS month, the Baltimore County Board of Education refused to let parents in Woodbridge Valley, a community near Woodlawn, pay $20,000 to rent a portable classroom -- the first step, they hoped, toward converting their elementary into the county's first kindergarten through eighth-grade school. It was the right decision, but I doubt the many parents with candy bars and pizza kits waiting in the refrigerator to be sold understand why.Why, at a time when schools desperately seek parental involvement and use donations for everything from stadium lights to computers, should parents not be allowed to help buy the kind of school they want?

The Baltimore County school board last night approved boundary line changes that will force more than 500 students to change schools over the next two years, but decided not to take up a request by parents at Woodbridge Elementary School to add a seventh grade for the fall.The redistricting changes affect middle school students in the western and northwestern county as well as elementary school students who live near Sparks Elementary School in the northern county.The board's inaction on the Woodbridge proposal essentially rejects it for this fall, despite a pledge from parents this month to pay the more than $20,000 cost of renting and installing a portable classroom at the school to provide space for more students.

The unprecedented offer by Woodbridge Elementary parents to raise more than $20,000 for a portable classroom to create Baltimore County's first kindergarten through 8th-grade school has ignited debate over how far parents should go in paying for basic school services.While willing to accept fund-raising for field trips, stadium lights, computers and playground equipment, some county educators and school board members balk at parents footing the bill for renovations and new classrooms."I'm not sure we want parents paying for that kind of thing," said school board president Dunbar Brooks.

With many big-name zinfandels approaching or exceeding $20, it's good to know there's still a modestly priced zin that delivers true varietal character at an affordable price. Nobody's going to put this wine in the zinfandel hall of fame, but it's a well-made, medium-bodied red with appealing berry fruit and none of the raisiny quality you sometimes get in cheap zinfandel. Plus, you can find it all over, not just in specialty wine shops.

Woodbridge Valley parents want their children kept in Woodbridge Elementary School through eighth grade. Baltimore County educators say the building doesn't have enough space.But the parents aren't taking "no" for an answer. They're proposing to pay for an extra classroom themselves -- and in just two weeks of fund raising they have pledges for $22,000 of the $32,000 they believe it would cost to add a portable classroom in the fall."If the only problem was having the money to give our school more space, we thought it was a natural that we could raise the money ourselves," said Sherman Reed, the parent of two Woodbridge children and head of the effort to convert the elementary to a kindergarten-through-eighth-grade school.
